Why One Disk Is Better Than Two

A novel optical concept for a spinning disk confocal microscope is presented, which warrants maximal optical quality, speed and usability. It employs a single disk only instead of two, and it uses micromirrors instead of microlenses, thus minimizing chromatic aberrations and yielding an uncompromised performance over the full visible range from 405 - 700 nm. Careful optimization of coupling optics result in flat and homogenous illumination free of speckle artifacts, and the full optical performance is maintained over the full field of view.

TILL Photonics to become FEI Munich GmbH


In November 2011, FEI Company acquired TILL Photonics.
The process of integration is about to be finalized: Effective 5th August 2013, TILL Photonics GmbH will become FEI Munich GmbH. The site will continue to operate from its current address. It will also continue to sell and develop the live cell imaging product lines iMIC, spinning disk, TIRF, FRAP, FRET, 2 photon and calcium imaging.

Point into Confocal Microscopy

High performance confocal microscopy can now be achieved using a white light source. This follows the launch by Andor Technology of Revolution DSD, a fully integrated system based on a Differential Spinning Disk optical system working in conjunction with an high sensitivity, Interline CCD camera Clara and controlled by an IQ work station.
Using white light, as opposed to lasers, significantly cuts the cost and brings this form of microscopy within the budget of far more potential users, particularly as this compact solution will fit the side port of any microscope. more
